    Mattie is pretty! She's a reproduction, and a nice one at that. You should find the serial number on the underside, near the needle plate.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    it's not a singer,, it's a clone,, look at the top of the arm singer say The singer co , your say singer co, the colors are wrong, The serail number is under the base,, on the bottom ...

    I'm sure the cabinet is a singer but not the head

    Well go figure. I thought it was in too good of shape to be an old Singer, lol....She is still beautiful. I knew it was like a Model 15. I have one Clone but it does not say Singer anywhere on it. I know this one has Singer stamped into a part under the base. I know the Cabinet is not from China. I have one of them too. Believe me they aren't much, lol...I also thought the decals were off but I have never seen one in very good shape either. Thanks everyone, now I know.

    I’d say it is a Singer machine, just not an old or vintage Singer machine.

    I just picked up one of those also --- brand new and not even oiled (for Heaven's sake). Mine is in a bentwood case and weighs a ton. Pretty take off of the Sphinx decal and I found out that they were manufactured in the 90's as Singer's way to try to generate interest in the sewing machines. Ladies didn't care all that much for them as they were sooooooo heavy so production was halted. They are not nearly as well made as the vintage machines but at least they are all metal (except for the plastic knob that lowers the feed dogs) and sew a reasonably good stitch. I paid $50 for mine and am happy with the purchase ........... have not seen them advertised anywhere (even on eBay) so had nothing to base price on. I remember someone telling me some time back that they sold for $299 back in the mid 90's when they were first introduced but I have no way to substantiate that. Charlee ------- do you know?

    Even if she's not vintage.... she's still pretty.

    John, it IS a Singer...but not vintage. This is one of the reproduction machines.
